I know everyone has covered the Royal Wedding and the dress, and quite rightly the comparison between Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge’s dress and Princess Grace of Monaco’s. This comparison has led to a lot of women starting to look for vintage wedding dresses that bring a touch on old school glamour to your special day.
While this 1920’s dress probably wasn’t a wedding dress originally, I can image this dress at a more laid back wedding with the bride having feathers in her hair and long beads circling her neck. It’s a beautiful way to gain the flapper look.
This gorgeous dress even has a train! While it isn’t in perfect condition it’s price is hard to ignore. Imagine a long veil with this and the train flowing behind the bride as she walks down the aisle whether its held or not.
Because of rationing either older dresses where reused or women got married in suits, nowadays this is perfect for a second marriage or even a small intimate affair. No veil, just a perfectly placed hair pin.
This is the perfect decade to look to for tea length dresses, which for a modern beach wedding (or the afterparty at a wild wedding) are a great choice, they don’t drag on the floor and you get to show off your shoes. This dress even has lace overlay and lace sleeves if you want to take inspiration from the royal wedding recently.
Mini, Mini, Mini! Show off lots of leg and dance the night away in a mod mini wedding dress. Would be perfect for a modern wedding if you where planning on going out on the town with your wedding party after the reception ends, the sequins will make sure all eyes are on the bride.
Definitely a look for the bohemian bride. A full length, flowy gown like this would be great especially if worn with flowers in the hair and the wedding was outdoors. I can imagine the flower girls in similar dresses and the bridesmaids in other maxi dresses.
